The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, once one of the best countries in the Eurovision, Winning 5 times, most of the times achieving good results, well it was until the second half of the 1980 decade, and because of that, they withdrew from the 1994 contest after Modern Times achieved only place in Milstreet.
Luexembourg has never returned since, maybe, the Luxembourgish people are not interested anymore, or maybe it’s just a tantrum. Since then Luxembourg has only expressed intentions to return 3 times the first was in 2005, RTL was seriously considering to return but later withdrew, and the day that they withdrew from the 2005 contest RTL said that ‘Luxembourg will never NEVER return’, however, in 2008 RTL again expressed intentions to return to the contest to be held in Belgrade, but again withdrew because lack of sponsors. Once more in 2010 RTL again, expressed their intentions to return to the contest but they finally withdrew, Back in 2011 during the confirmation season for the 2012 contest, there were rumors that RTL would return but later, shortly before the Participants list was revealed, RTL said that that was completely false.
Actually, 39 years ago today, Luxembourg complete back to back wins, first in 1972 when Vicky Leandros and ‘Apres Toi’ won in the UK, and then in 1973 (what we are commemorating today) Anne Marie David and ‘Tu Te Reconnaitras’ in Luxembourg
